The "Don't Judge Me" singer has long dodged rumors that he and Rihanna were more than friends — while carrying on a year-long relationship with aspiring model Karrueche Tran. Even yesterday, when he announced he had broken up with Tran, he said the reason behind the split was because he didn't want to see her hurt over his "friendship" with Rihanna. Well, last night he admitted that what he has going on with Rihanna is more than a friendship, posting a video featuring both women, in which he asks: "Is there such a thing as loving two people?"
On Thursday night, Brown tweeted a link to the video, which he titled "The Real Chris Brown." In it, the hip-hop star talks about his complicated love life and says he's "stressed out" by the love triangle he's found himself in. Early on in the largely black-and-white video, Brown, 23, admits, "I'm a little drunk, so I'm gonna be honest." He goes on to open up about his love life, musing, "You know when you share history with somebody, then you tend to fall in love with somebody else. It's kinda difficult. You know what I'm sayin'? Is there such a thing as loving two people? I don't know. I don't know if that's possible but for me, I just … I feel like that."
WARNING: The following video contains explicit language:
Throughout the video, there is footage of Brown with both Rihanna, 24, and Tran, also 24. The clips certainly paint Rihanna — whom he famously assaulted in 2009 — in a brighter light. She's looking radiant — smiling and looking glamorous. Meanwhile, in the shots featuring Brown with Tran, neither star looks particularly happy. They are shown having dinner together but there is no interaction between them — they are both staring at their phones.
The video ends with Brown — who has also recently been romantically linked to Nicole Scherzinger — talking about his future with both Rihanna and Tran. "I don't wanna hurt either or. This is me. I'm not trying to be a player. I'm not trying to be a dog. None of that. My momma raised me different. I just care. Too much." he says.
Brown received instant feedback on the video from Tran, whom he broke up with on Thursday. "Wtf is going on?" she tweeted. "All I'm saying is… You don't mess with people's genuine feelings. You just don't!"
Rihanna, who has been seen cozying up to Brown on three different occasions this week, took the opportunity to weigh in as well. "Ain't nobody's bidness…. But mine and my baby," she wrote.
Well, if it's nobody's business, why is Chris Brown sharing it with the world?
